What is Critical Path Analysis Different Definitions of CPA Powered by: Jazz Presentation Step 8: Determine the critical path : Step 8: Determine the critical path Calculated Slack:
This requires you to look at each of the tasks in turn and identify the time element shown below. For Consistency use the four box grid to capture the times of each task.
ES – The largest EF of any previous connected task., EF – ES plus the time taken to complete that task, LS - LF minus the time taken to complete that task., LF – The smallest LS of any following connected task Critical path is the shortest possible completion time for the project. This can be identified by two methods. Longest cumulative path: Calculate the shortest possible completion time for all of the paths through the project, the path whose best completion time takes the longest time is the critical path. Powered by: Jazz Presentation Step 8(Contd): Critical path for making cup of coffee : Step 8(Contd): Critical path for making cup of coffee When ES=LS and EF=LF that task is on the critical path and need to be highlighted.(in green) In this example 1, 2 and 4 are on the critical path and therefore need to be monitored carefully. Green shows the critical path Powered by: Jazz Presentation Step 9: Task tracking sheet : Step 9: Task tracking sheet Below is the sample of task tracking sheet, which can be used to identify all the details of a task.
